I think this is an odd demand. BibleCS is not my choice application. But
it supports all current modules. It has a massive user base. Why exactly
should it get removed? It is in terms of features equalled/bettered by
Xiphos and now seemingly BT, its looks are not what I (and many others)
like - all this is true. But it is clearly not deprecated right now.

As long as it supports all currently released modules and as long as
there are no modules held back by lack of BibleCS development I can not
see how we can even think of removing it. Its use (or lack of use) is a
matter of choice, personal preference or taste, but not one of technical
merit or lack of it - at least right now.

To compare it with LCDBible makes little sense.
